The great writer Anne Carson is known for combating tired or overly personal interview questions by responding simply with brackets, full stops or a one word morsel (if you’re lucky).
Short Forms is an online microfiction anthology nodding to Our Lady of Brevity, Anne Carson. The collection proves an economy of words doesn’t compromise story. Instead, a shorter word count wrangles language and offers readers space to read the gaps and silences.
